Windows Reinstallation Disk option:
Insert Windows Reinstallation disk into tray, Boot to CD/DVD-ROM by pressing F12 at initial boot screens, delete existing Windows partition, re-create partition, and then follow steps to reinstall Windows. This will lead you to an option for formatting hard drive. I recommend choosing the full format versus the quick, from this point you can let windows install, or just shut the computer down when the format finishes. You will have to watch the progress, though, if you don't want the install to commence.
Boot disk option:
For XP, 95, 98, or ME, follow the instructions at this MS article page. It will walk you through creating a boot disk that will allow you to format.
You will need a floppy disk or CD

If so there should be a Microsoft label on the bottom of the Acer which has the Product installation key printed on the label.
